Great Driffield, a thriving market town serving an extensive agricultural hinterland, stands at the junction of the Yorkshire Wolds and Holderness. The centre of an important Anglo-Saxon manor, in royal hands in the early middle ages, the main settlement was transformed from a large village into a boom town following the opening of a canal in 1770 that linked it to the expanding markets of Hull and the West Riding; its social, religious and political life flourished in the Victorian period particularly. This volume covers its history and that of its adjoining rural townships of Little Driffield, Elmswell and Kelleythorpe, from the Neolithic period to the beginning of the twenty-first century; it provides the first detailed account of the town's trades and industries, as well as exploring landownership, local government, and social, religious and political life. The editors are former staff of the University of Hull.
My name is Aspen Joyce. Once I had everything, I just didn't know how to appreciate it. That all changed when my whole family and my horse were killed in a car accident. They say that it was a miracle that I survived. I guess I have a different definition for 'miracle'. So I was sent to live in Arizona with someone I barely know-- my biological dad who left me and Mom when I was only four years old. I barely got there when I realized something was really wrong. I was being haunted by a phantom. A Ghost Horse.
Blackly humorous, utterly un-PC, Robert G. Barrett revels in being controversial and contrary. He's a true original and is much loved by his many thousands of readers.
